Greek-Americans back Giannoulias

The candidacy of 33-year-old Alexis Giannoulias for the position of federal senator for Illinois – held until last November by US President Barack Obama – has enthused the Greek-American community. Last week, Giannoulias visited New York for appearances at events to financially aid his pre-election campaign.
The Illinois Treasurer officially launched his campaign on July 26, encouraging supporters to “stand up” and join him in his effort to revive the economy and restore opportunity for Illinois residents. The only Democrat to declare his candidacy for the seat, he said that Washington needs responsible leaders who will take on powerful special interest groups during these difficult economic times.
